trillion tax cut to the american people, and you've got a -- not personally by name, but we now know it was you. let's just play a clip of this and see what your reaction is. >> well, actually, the president's charge of a $5 trillion tax cut is obviously inaccurate and wrong, because when he says this, let's look at all the rates you're lowering, and then he ignores the fact that i say we're also going to limit deductions and credits and exemptions. he ignores that part. obviously that was corrected by his deputy campaign manager, who said that she stipulated that in fact, the $5 trillion number was wrong. it's completely wrong. >> he's talking about you there, stephanie. >> he is. >> he says that you said it was wrong. >> that's right. right. piers, i'm really glad you brought that up. so there's this thing called math and here are mitt romney's tax cuts. if you add up lowering the tax rate by 20%, eliminating the alternative minimum tax, repealing the high income payroll, repealing the estate tax, and lowering taxes for corporations, that totals $5 trillion. so that's mitt romney's
. >> i agree -- >> president obama has the right policy. >> rather like his tax policies, the devil in the detail has not emerged yet. we look forward to hearing that. what i want to play you is a clip from "saturday night live" showing president obama onstage in denver. let's watch this. >> excuse me, governor. mr. president? >> i'm sorry, yeah. yeah. what's up? >> mr. president, governor romney has just said that he killed osama bin laden. would you care to respond? >> no, you two go ahead. >> it was a fairly dismal performance, wasn't it. as a result the polls are quite shocking today. this pew poll, there's been a swing from september 12th to 16th, it's gone from 51% to 43% in obama's favor to 49% to 45 in romney's favor. this is catastrophic, isn't it? >> it's not catastrophic. it's a poll. but look, there's no secret, the president didn't have a good debate performance. we have got to get out there, all democrats, all people who support president obama, and aggressively make the case because on the substance of economic policy, we have the better plan. look, all mitt romney wa
again. >>> why won't romney level with us about his tax plan which gives the wealthy huge new tax breaks? because according to experts, he would have to raise taxes on the middle class, or increase the deficit to pay for it. if we can't trust him here, how could we ever trust him here? >> roller coaster week hitting a high note for president obama. the new jobless numbers are easing the pain of his poor debate performance and bring romney's momentum to a sharp stop or it may not. joining me now, "new york times" columnist, nick kristof. let's start with the job figures today. because it's clearly good news for barack obama politically if nothing else. >> not only the numbers today but the revisions for the last two months. we seem to really be on a trajectory and you know, this is going -- apparently what really matters is not the economy for the year but the economy at the moment as people approach the election. people are beginning to vote. >> the good news for barack obama there. not so good news his performance at the debate. common consensus is a bit of a turkey. >> he blew it. >> w
in his presidency. and he has said it yet today that we will not be funding abortion with tax pay or money. he is a pro life president and people at the point of conception deserve the freedoms as preserved by our constitut n constitution. this is a rabbit trail. you want to talk about trust. he said he was going to cut the deficit in half. that is trust. if a politician changes his position on issues do you see it as a cynical exercise? >> no. listen, i hear what you are saying. i think it is possible to learn things about legislation and determine things as you go through lift and you can change your mind. yes, i think that is possible. but what i don't think is possible is for a president to made grandious promises knowing the condition of where we were headed saying that he would fix this economy not even coming close to his promises, that is different. i would say this is a record of makes and breaking promises. and that is why you can't stand in front of a debate moderator for 90 minutes and make the case for the people. he didn't have a bat night, he is not capable of brin
that he didn't have a five trillion tax cut plan that would increase taxes on the middle class to pay for taxes on the millionaire and billionaires. now he tells the register that he wouldn't make abortion a part of his agenda. i mean, this is the same mitt romney that said he would be delighted to ban abortions if congress sent it to him. his lead running mate has been the sponsor of many legislations that would totally stop women. mitt romney has been a severely conservative candidate for president. now that he notices that the policies could make sure he does not have is a chance of being elected, he is trying to hide who he is and what he stands for. we won't let him get away with it. >> when it comes to trust, though, we're watching the hearings on the libya attack. and there is no doubt, now, there is an issue on the trust with the white house and the statements that came out from the various ambassadors and so on, what do you make it? what it a scandal? should heads roll? >> well, first of all, piers, president obama knew ambassador chris stevens, knew him personally and was s
but ryan didn't back down. here's one memorable exchange between the two. >> you can cut tax rates by 20% and still preserve these important preferences for middle class taxpayers -- >> not mathematically possible. >> it is mathematically possible. it's been done before. it's precisely what we're proposing -- >> it has never been done before. >> it's been done a couple times. >> it has never been done before. >> jack kennedy lowered tax rates, increased growth. >> now you're jack kennedy. >> here's how cnn scored it, practically a tie. vice president biden's son beau will discuss. first, governor romney on the warpath over libya, saying joe biden is in complete denial when he said during the debate last night the white house had no clue the u.s. consulate in benghazi wanted more security before the deadly attack that killed the ambassador. let's get right to our first guest to talk about it. republican congressman mike rogers, chairman of the house select committee on intelligence. mr. rogers, thank you for joining me. let me ask you straight away about your reaction to this issue that's
